HÀ NỘI — Đà Nẵng City will establish four new industrial parks (IPs) by 2020, Hồ Kỳ Minh, vice chairman of Đà Nẵng City’s People’s Committee, said.
Minh said the committee had asked the city’s Department of Industry and Trade (DOIT) in collaboration with relevant agencies to speedily implement procedures to submit the establishment plan of the four IPs to the Government.
Under the province’s plans, the four IPs are Hòa Nhơn, Hòa Ninh, Hòa Sơn IPs and the second phase of the Hòa Cầm IP, with the total area of 1,600ha, one-and-a-half-times the total area of the city’s existing industrial parks.
Hòa Ninh, Hòa Sơn IPs and the expansion of phase two of the Hòa Cầm IP are expected to be completed this year, while Hòa Nhơn IP will be finished by July 2017.
The establishment of new IPs aims to solve the city’s problem of less space for the operation of regional firms, which has caused pressure on local authorities, Lê Tuấn Khanh, head of the Planning and Construction Management Board under the Management Board of Đà Nẵng City Export Processing and Industrial Zone Authority, told Đà Nẵng newspaper.
According to the city’s Association of Small and Medium Enterprises, Đà Nẵng currently has over 17,000 enterprises, in which small and medium-sized enterprises account for some 97 per cent, with registered capital of VNĐ90 trillion (US$3.9 billion), Đà Nẵng newspaper reported.
At present, Đà Nẵng has six industrial parks, with an area of over 1,000ha, but they are fully occupied. Most of the regional firms lack stable production premises and therefore are forced to set up temporary factories in residential areas, which make a lot of noise and affect the residential environment.
In addition to the four new IPs, the city also plans to build eight more industrial clusters to create more space for the operation of micro and small enterprises. Till date, the city DOIT has completed the draft plan on the establishment of industrial clusters to submit to the city’s People’s Committee. Most of the new industrial clusters will be established in Hòa Vang and Liên Chiểu districts.
The city’s DOIT was also asked to prepare steps for mobilising investment for the construction of wholesale markets for cattle, poultry and agricultural products in the city. DOIT will select the city’s key industrial products and formulate policies to encourage and promote the brand and for the formation of key industrial enterprises. — VNS
